Islamic Finance and Islamic Wealth Management are probably the closest the financial markets are ever likely to get to truly moral and ethical banking.

They remain a highly popular alternative to conventional products and are popular with both Muslims and Non-Muslims alike. Based on Islamic and Shariah principles they are mainly concerned with genuine profit and loss sharing with a real risk sharing ethic between banker and client.

Islamic wealth and fund management operates on the same principles as Islamic Banking and is equally popular. However, unlike conventional banking the product range is a lot narrower and although it continues to grow, the opportunities are more limited.

That said, to be a Shariah compliant investment requires compliance with a very strict code of ethics which tends to eliminate the speculative and highly geared opportunities. Accordingly, Islamic investments offer generally safer returns with steady growth and limited downside.

All three qualities make this an attractive proposition which is growing in popularity as an increasing number of offerings enter the market.


This course considers the merits of Shariah compliant investments, explains how and why they are compliant and how they can be used to build a portfolio for the morally and ethically driven investor.
